Let's see.
I make a comment concerning stress and deterioration of accuracy in a gun fight, and you say; not true.

I will counter by saying; you have me dead to rights on my gun fighting skill, and experience involving an opponent such as a 36" tall 28 piece of lumber. Pressure treated no less. That most likely added to the threat you faced, yet you remained calm enough to make multiple head shots. Or board (pressure treated) shots.

I'll concede.

I'll never understand why anyone thinks that shooting at any inanimate object proves how they'd do against another person. Sure, it shows you have decent aim, but that's not even half the problem in a defensive situation.
This exchange from the classic movie, "Unforgiven" says it all, I think:


W.W. Beauchamp: So, Corky was actually quicker on the draw than the D... than English Bob?
Little Bill Daggett: Quicker was his whole **** problem. If he hadn't been in such a hurry, he wouldn't have shot his own toe off. Look son, being a good shot, being quick with a pistol, that don't do no harm, but it don't mean much next to being cool-headed. A man who will keep his head and not get rattled under fire, like as not, he'll kill ya. Look here... [stands and draws his gun] That's about as fast as I can draw, and aim, and hit anything more than ten feet away... 'less it's a barn.
W.W. Beauchamp: But... if he doesn't miss?
Little Bill: Then he'll kill ya. [chuckles] Yeah, that's why there's so few dangerous men around like old Bob, like me. It ain't so easy to shoot a man anyhow, especially if the son-of-a-**** is shootin' back at you. I mean, that'll just flat rattle some folks.
